Joel Embiid (torn ligament, left hand) practiced in full capacity on Friday but will not play Saturday vs. the Lakers.
Embiid seems to have rehabilitated his formerly mangled finger pretty quickly, so this news is encouraging for a reeling Sixers team who also just lost Josh Richardson for a few weeks. He's still due for a re-evaluation on Monday, but the fact that he's already practicing ahead of that appointment is a good sign. Tuesday night against the Warriors seems like a good bet for his return date, though they don't exactly need Embiid in that matchup. Hang in there with the dominant, albeit brittle All-Star starter.
